To everyone:
I am so sorry that I haven't posted in ages, but things have been a bit crazy concerning my internet, and then I went away for a week and a half, before I could ask someone to take over. I feel really awful for not telling everyone that there wouldn't be a word of a day for a while, but it was out of my control. I'm back, though, so your words will come back.
